Waste firms write to ministers over landfill tax changes


This is going to be very painful for all skip hire firms. I think the ones kicking up the most are the people who have been shredding residual waste and getting it in to landfill as cover @ £2.50 per ton saving approx £2000 per artic load sent to landfill and made a fortune in avoiding paying landfill tax While others who have invested in picking stations baling equipment etc and tried to recycle as many materials as possible and still ended up with paying landfill tax on non recyclables at the prevailing rate. To sum up those who shred have got what was coming to them and dragged the genuine firms who have been recycling to best of their abilities in to this mess. Only time will tell who will survive this.
